A New Zealand coroner on Tuesday confirmed that 26-year-old Rory Nairn, a New Zealand plumber, died of myocarditis caused by the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.
“The cause of [Nairn’s] death was myocarditis, due to vaccination with the ComirnatyTM Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine,” she said.

Nairn, 26, died on Nov. 17, 2021, just 12 days after receiving the first dose of the vaccine.
Coroner Sue Johnson led an inquest into the cause of Nairn’s death and publicly released the findings on Tuesday.
“The cause of [Nairn’s] death was myocarditis, due to vaccination with the ComirnatyTM Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine,” she said.
Johnson used evidence based on expert findings by pathologist Noelyn Hung, who said the direct cause of Nairn’s death was “acute myocarditis,” according to the NZ Herald.
“[Hung] saw that it was not caused by Rory having rheumatic fever or by infection as there was no sign of a bacteria, virus or fungi,” Johnson said.
“She also excluded all other known potential causes of myocarditis, for example, certain medicines such as the anti-psychotic medications clozapine and risperidone which can cause myocarditis.”
Johnson accepted Hung’s medical opinion that the myocarditis was caused by the vaccine, as there was an absence of any other cause after numerous tests.
But Johnson said the inquiry into Nairn’s death had “not yet concluded,” and she still had to determine whether it could have been prevented and if any recommendations were required.
Nairn not warned of myocarditis risks
The inquiry heard that Nairn reported his chest feeling weird the night he received the jab, also mentioning having heart flutters in the days following.
But he believed it to be caused by the stress of his forthcoming wedding and the purchasing of a new home.
On the night of his death, Nairn collapsed in the bathroom soon after planning to go to the hospital.
Emergency services were called, but he could not be resuscitated.
The Ministry of Health said it had issued warnings that outlined the risk of myocarditis as a rare side effect of the vaccine.
But the manager of the pharmacy where Nairn got vaccinated criticized the ministry for putting myocarditis information in small bullet points.
She said medical professionals had been informed about myocarditis, but she had missed the warning under the sheer volume of information received.
“As soon as we were notified, all practices were changed. It’s just unfortunate that Mr. Nairn had to pass away for that to happen,” she said.

New Zealanders no longer tolerate medical tyranny, as “the science” narrative collapses
by: Lance D Johnson
Tuesday, September 13, 2022
On September 13, 2022, the New Zealand government announced that they will be rolling back covid-19 restrictions and vaccine mandates. “The Science” is suddenly collapsing in New Zealand, as the population exits its state of mass psychosis and learns to reject new vaccine booster programs, forced masks, and social distancing.
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said, “It’s time to safely turn the page on our COVID-19 management and live without the extraordinary measures we have previously used.” She said the rollback on restrictions and mandates is a “milestone” and now the population can “move forward with certainty.”
New Zealanders no longer tolerate medical tyranny, as “the science” narrative collapses
Just a year ago, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern rolled out a “traffic-light system” of population control that held the people hostage to “The Science” of lockdowns, family separation, forced masks, isolation, PCR tests, and mandatory mRNA vaccines.
This miserable system of slavery granted special privileges to the vaccine-compliant, while barring the “unvaccinated” from public life. The vaccine-compliant, of course, were either manipulated, injured or killed. Vaccine survivors had to get sick on purpose, destroy their innate immune system, and give up their basic human dignity to comply with a system of abuse. The unvaccinated, on the other hand, had to endure a constant assault on their privacy, freedom and character, as historic levels of discrimination and segregation were used to punish them for imaginary crimes.
In the RED-LIGHT phase of the traffic light system, the government took full control over all private businesses, demanding that they shut out the “unvaccinated” and serve only the “fully vaccinated.” Restaurants, bars, gyms and other “close contact” venues were all seized by the government and forced to discriminate against innocent individuals.
In the ORANGE LIGHT phase of the traffic light system, (for which the government was currently enforcing) the government dictated masks mandates for flights, public transport, taxis, retail and all other public venues. During this phase, churches and other places of worship were only allowed to host one hundred people maximum, and attendees were required to worship in separate spaces, with no physical contact allowed.
New Zealand establishes a lightweight, new normal of medical tyranny
The New Zealand government is abolishing their “traffic light COVID protection framework,” but will establish a “new normal” of forced masking in health care and aged care settings. Likewise, the government will enforce covid-19 testing where they deem it suitable and will require that citizens isolate for seven days in a row if a PCR swab turns up positive for the advertised disease.
On the magic date of September 26, the vaccine mandates will be removed, allowing incoming travelers and aircrew to freely enter the country. On that date, “the science” will be tossed out, as the government takes an “anti-vax” approach that they censored and essentially criminalized for more than a year.
However, the New Zealand government and the courts will not uphold or protect the rights of the citizens when vaccine mandates are considered at the employer level. In fact, the government announced that employers across the country can violate individual medical privacy and mandate masks and vaccines at their own discretion. Any business can still use vaccine certificates as a form of mass surveillance to violate an individual’s medical privacy and segregate them at will.
So, while there is progress in New Zealand, the truth about the covid-19 vaccine is still being ignored, and medical ethics are far from being restored. The totalitarian approach that was used a year ago was a maniacal negotiation tactic to condition the population to eventually accept lighter restrictions that STILL VIOLATE the bodily autonomy and health of the individual.
“In short, we now move on to a simple two requirements system of masks in healthcare settings and seven days isolation for positive cases only,” Ardern said while refusing to defend the rights of the citizens to make their own healthcare decisions. For a full return to normalcy, the rule of law must be upheld against government officials like Ardern who continue to violate human rights and medical ethics.
Sky News host Rita Panahi says New Zealanders are finally waking up to the “gross ineptitude” of their “lockdown happy Prime Minister”.
“After enjoying one of the longest political honeymoons in modern politics, thanks largely to adoring media coverage,” she said. “Jacinda Ardern and her Labour party are facing some ugly poll numbers and protests.”
Come on NZ, get rid of the fascists! Reclaim your country!
Sky News host Rita Panahi says New Zealanders are finally waking up to the “gross ineptitude” of their “lockdown happy Prime Minister”. “After enjoying one of the longest political honeymoons in modern politics, thanks largely to adoring media coverage,” she said. “Jacinda Ardern and her Labour party are facing some ugly poll numbers and protests.”
THIS LANDMARK CASE WILL BE USED TO OVERTHROW ALL OF ARDERN’S ILLEGAL MANDATES IN NEW ZEALAND.
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern was left reeling on Friday after a High Court ruled that her vaccine mandate represented a “gross violation of human rights” for New Zealanders.
The landmark case means that the police and NZDF cannot be fired for refusing to take the experimental vaccine. This case will be used to overthrow all of Ardern’s illegal mandates in New Zealand.
Justice Francis Cooke ruled that ordering frontline police officers and Defence staff to be vaccinated or face losing their job was not a “reasonably justified” breach of the Bill of Rights.
Nzherald.co.nz reports: The lawyer for the police and Defence staff at the centre of the claim is now calling for the suspended workers to return to their jobs immediately, saying many have given decades of service to their community and are still committed to their jobs.
The challenge, put forward by a group of Defence force and police employees, questioned the legality of making an order under the Covid-19 Public Health Response Act to require vaccination for frontline employees.
The challenge was supported by a group of 37 employees affected by the mandate, who submitted written affidavits to the court.
Minister of Workplace Relations and Safety Michael Wood, Deputy Police Commissioner Tania Kura and NZDF Chief People Officer Brigadier Matthew Weston filed affidavits defending the mandate.
As it stands, 164 of the overall police workforce of nearly 15,700 were affected by the mandate after choosing not to be vaccinated. For NZDF, the mandate affected 115 of its 15,500 staff.
The group relied on two aspects of the Bill of Rights – the right to decline a medical procedure and the right to religious freedom.
On the religious freedom argument, a number of those who made submissions referred to their fundamental objection to taking the Pfizer vaccine, given that it was tested on the cells that were derived from a human foetus.
Justice Cooke agreed with the claim, saying that “an obligation to receive the vaccine which a person objects to because it has been tested on cells derived from a human foetus, potentially an aborted foetus, does involve a limitation on the manifestation of a religious belief.”
However, Justice Cooke disagreed with the claimants’ broader claims that requiring vaccination is inconsistent with holding religious beliefs more generally.
“I do not accept that a belief in an individual’s bodily integrity and personal autonomy is a religious belief or practice. Rather it seems to me, in the circumstances of this case, to be a belief in the secular concept referred to in section 11 of the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act.”
Justice Cooke also agreed with the claim that the mandate impinged on the right to decline a medical procedure.
The judge said that while it’s clear the government isn’t forcing Police and NZDF employees to get vaccinated against their will and they still have the right to refuse vaccination, the mandate presents an element of pressure.
“The associated pressure to surrender employment involves a limit on the right to retain that employment, which the above principles suggest can be thought of as an important right or interest recognised not only in domestic law, but in the international instruments,” Justice Cooke stated.
But in considering the two claims, Justice Cooke also considered whether or not the mandate fell within the definitions laid out in the Covid-19 Public Health Response Act.
The court accepted that vaccination has a significant beneficial effect in limiting serious illness, hospitalisation, and death, including with the Omicron variant. However, it was less effective in reducing infection and transmission of Omicron than had been the case with other variants of Covid-19.
“In essence, the order mandating vaccinations for police and NZDF staff was imposed to ensure the continuity of the public services, and to promote public confidence in those services, rather than to stop the spread of Covid-19. Indeed health advice provided to the government was that further mandates were not required to restrict the spread of Covid-19. I am not satisfied that continuity of these services is materially advanced by the order,” the Judge said.
“Covid-19 clearly involves a threat to the continuity of police and NZDF services. That is because the Omicron variant in particular is so transmissible. But that threat exists for both vaccinated and unvaccinated staff. I am not satisfied that the order makes a material difference, including because of the expert evidence before the court on the effects of vaccination on Covid-19 including the Delta and Omicron variants.”
An additional claim that the mandate would disproportionately affect Māori was dismissed by Justice Cooke.

The so-called “ Christchurch Call ” summit in Paris on Wednesday, led by New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and French President Emmanuel Macron, marked a significant escalation of the drive by governments throughout the world to censor the Internet.
Ardern and her Labour Party-led government, along with the Australian and French governments, are taking a leading role in exploiting the March 15 Christchurch terrorist attacks by Australian fascist Brenton Tarrant to justify sweeping attacks on freedom of expression. Tarrant live-streamed a video of the shootings, which killed 51 people, on Facebook.
The “summit” issued a statement signed by 17 governments, including the UK, France, Australia, India, Indonesia, Canada and Germany, along with Facebook, Twitter, Google and other tech giants. The statement agreed to “eliminate terrorist and violent extremist content” on social media platforms and other websites, and to steer people toward officially-sanctioned “positive” alternatives or “counter-narratives.” The US government did not sign, but a White House statement expressed agreement with the statement’s “overarching message.”
No one should be fooled by worthless assurances that these governments and corporate giants will protect “freedom of expression.” What constitutes “terrorist” or “extremist” material will be decided by the state agencies.
For the past two years, corporations such as Google and Facebook have collaborated with the US and other governments to severely restrict access to left-wing, socialist and anti-war websites, particularly to the WSWS. Their algorithms have been modified to reduce traffic to these sources, while promoting supposedly “authoritative” websites, i.e., the corporate media, in search results and news feeds. These measures, justified with lies about combating “fake news” and Russian and Chinese “interference,” are now being escalated under the guise of fighting “extremism.”
The New Zealand prime minister, having been glorified in the media internationally for showing “kindness” and “compassion” following the Christchurch shootings, has become one of the chief propagandists for censorship internationally.
An article by Ardern in the May 11 New York Times, with the misleading headline “How to Stop the Next Christchurch Massacre,” blamed the attack on social media and lax gun controls, while covering up its political roots. She made no mention of the fascist, anti-immigrant and white supremacist ideology that motivated the gunman, apart from a hypocritical sentence about the need to “tackle racism and discrimination.”
Far from opposing racism, Ardern’s Labour Party-led coalition government includes the racist and xenophobic New Zealand First Party, whose leader Winston Peters has made numerous anti-Muslim statements. Labour and Ardern herself have vowed to cut immigration. They have echoed NZ First’s nationalist demagogy and adopted many of its anti-immigrant policies. After the 2017 election, Ardern made Peters foreign minister and deputy prime minister, giving his right-wing nationalist party significant power in the government, despite the fact that it received just over 7 percent of the votes.
Ardern wrote that the Paris agreement “is not about undermining or limiting freedom of speech.” In her “Christchurch Call” speech, she again rejected concerns “that this action plan we are endorsing today is about curbing freedom of expression.”
Such assurances are belied by the actions of the Labour government since the Christchurch attacks. It has worked with the corporate media to suppress public discussion about the causes of the atrocity. Tarrant’s manifesto, which reveals the similarity of his anti-immigrant, nationalist views to those of NZ First, US President Donald Trump and other political parties in Australia and across Europe, has been banned. Anyone caught with the document could face a lengthy prison sentence.
Likewise, media organisations have agreed to self-censor their coverage of Tarrant’s upcoming trial, so as not to report on his fascistic statements, precisely in order to obscure the connection to the foul right-wing politics of all the establishment parties.
This unprecedented censorship is also aimed at preventing discussion about Tarrant’s sympathy for the military and police, and why the intelligence agencies and police failed to prevent the Christchurch attack, despite repeated warnings. A royal commission of inquiry, which began this week ostensibly to look into these questions, is so far being held in secret.
More sweeping and permanent censorship mechanisms are being planned. A foundation established by former Labour Prime Minister Helen Clark has recommended a new regulatory body specifically to police social media. It would have the power to take websites like Facebook completely offline, as happened in Sri Lanka following the terrorist attacks in April. The Helen Clark Foundation’s report, “Anti-Social Media: Reducing the spread of harmful content on social networks,” also calls for restrictions on the ability to live-stream videos.
Already, the Australian government has seized on the Christchurch attacks to rush legislation through parliament that will impose severe fines and prison sentences on social media executives who fail to remove material that the government deems “abhorrent” and “violent.” This could include videos, photos and articles that expose police brutality, war crimes and fascistic assaults on immigrants.
Such laws have nothing to do with fighting racism, terrorism or “fake news.” They will be used against the working class and its ability to organise against war and social inequality. It is no accident that the “Christchurch Call” was hosted by Macron. His right-wing government and the French media have slandered the anti-austerity “yellow vest” protests, involving hundreds of thousands of workers, as violent and anti-Semitic, in order to justify brutal police crackdowns and the arrest of protesters.
New Zealand’s ruling class has also been shaken by protests and strikes over the past year, including by teachers and healthcare workers. The corporatist trade union bureaucracy has expressed hostility and nervousness over workers organising independently and sharing information on social media.
The contempt for freedom of speech shared by all the governments that signed the “Christchurch Call” is most starkly revealed in their support for the persecution of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and whistleblower Chelsea Manning. They face lengthy imprisonment or even the death penalty for exposing US-led war crimes and other government-corporate abuses. The New Zealand parliament last year refused to even discuss a petition presented by Assange’s supporters calling for Ardern to offer him asylum.
As the crisis of capitalism deepens, with escalating social inequality, trade war and US threats of war against Iran, Venezuela, North Korea, China and Russia, the ruling elites are returning to the methods of the 1930s and 1940s. Governments are whipping up racism and xenophobia to divide workers, while desperately seeking to censor information, in order to prevent the emergence of a mass anti-war and anti-capitalist movement.

Three people are currently in custody in New Zealand for terrorist attacks on two mosques in Christchurch. As of this writing, 49 people are dead and 48 people are being treated for gunshot wounds. Explosives were found in two vehicles but none were detonated. It was the worst attack of its kind in New Zealand’s history.
One of the three individuals, a 28 year-old Australian man, live-streamed himself shooting mosque attendees and published a white nationalist manifesto explaining his motives. I don’t feel like linking to either of these things, the former because sharing it would be gross and the latter because the manifesto contains calls for further acts of terrorism and suggestions as to how they might be carried out, as well as instructions on how best to circulate white nationalist propaganda. It’s currently unclear to what extent the other two individuals were involved.
I’m not used to these things happening in my neck of the woods and I’m still a bit frazzled about it, but I’ve got a few thoughts on the matter that I may as well spit out even if they’re sloppy. Here they are in no particular order:
1 — The most common point of discussion I’m seeing online about all this is the designation of the “terrorist” label. Whenever an attack like this is perpetrated by a Muslim I see right wingers screaming at every media outlet that doesn’t label them a terrorist, and whenever a white person does it I see those on the left screaming at every media outlet that doesn’t label them a terrorist. And I totally get it; it’s unfair to see white people labeled “gunman” and “shooter” when a Muslim would not receive the same treatment from certain outlets.
But it is also important to remember that the threat of domestic terrorism is used by the empire to justify taking away civil rights on the pretense of protecting the citizenry. Demanding the expanded use of that term is ultimately demanding more surveillance, torture, arbitrary detention, and the erosion of legal and constitutional protections for everyone. It’s important to be aware of the potential propagandistic leverage in the language and causes we advocate.
2 — There is definitely a correlation between war propaganda and mass murder. I can’t cite any studies for that claim because nobody’s doing them, but there is no way that being told mass murder is acceptable day in and day out by highly adept manipulators doesn’t make a civilian more prone to committing acts of mass murder. Australians always get sucked into the western empire’s wars, and thus receive the same kinds of war propaganda through our mass media. There’s only so far you can twist a mind into accepting the unacceptable before it breaks.
3 — Relatedly, Islamophobia has been exponentially inflamed by the mass media since 9/11 to justify the empire’s need to keep slaughtering human beings who happen to be walking around on top of oil and geostrategic locations. In his manifesto the attacker explicitly stated that he chose Muslims as the group of immigrants to target with his racist vendetta because “They are the most despised group of invaders in the West, attacking them receives the greatest level of support.” The reason Muslims are so despised is because the flames of Islamophobia have been fanned by propagandists who need us not to care about the cold-blooded murder of a million Iraqis.
4 — The Christchurch attack was evil and horrific. And, also, it was no more evil or horrific than the violence routinely inflicted upon Muslims in the Middle East by the US war machine.
5 — The manifesto was really dumb, with the final three-quarters containing nothing but sermonizing on the need to start killing brown-skinned people to ignite a western racial and ideological war which will balkanize into separate ethnostates. The guy babbled on and on about the need to protect “European” nations (which for him included majority-white nations like Australia and the USA) and “European” heritage, without ever touching on the fact that Europeans were all constantly killing each other until a few decades ago. They all hated each other, and in many cases still do, because nothing unites them besides the relative absence of melanin on their skin. They’re a bunch of completely different nations with completely different cultures.
6 — The following three beliefs about “white culture” are stupid: (1) that it exists, (2) that it is under attack, and (3) that it is worth saving. There is no such thing as “white culture”; the absence of melanin is not a culture. There is Irish culture, Italian culture, Spanish culture, German culture, but there is no “white culture”. I feel no special kinship with anyone who shares my skin pigmentation in the way that two Black Americans or Aboriginal tribesmen might, and neither does any other white person who hasn’t gone out of their way to make a moronic, artificial construct out of “white identity”. Two ancestors of American slaves have a shared collective history and experience unifying them, two Australian Aboriginals have tribal culture and tradition, but two white people have nothing beyond “Yeah we both need to put on sun screen at the beach or we’ll get cancer.”
White culture isn’t a thing, and if it was it wouldn’t be anywhere remotely close to being under attack, and even if it were it wouldn’t be worth saving anyway. White people have succeeded in murdering, raping, pillaging and bulldozing their way across the planet, and now our entire species sits on the brink of extinction thanks to the “advancements” of white society. We’ve got nothing to be proud of and it would be fine if we faded softly into obscurity.
7 — The manifesto gripes about miscegenation (interracial reproduction) and dwindling birth rates constantly, which shows you why white supremacists are also reliably awful misogynists. The reason birth rates are down in the west is because that’s what happens when you give women money, education and legal equality. When women get those things, we tend to take full ownership of our reproductive systems, and guess what? We don’t feel like having ten kids anymore. High birth rates are the result of desperate, powerless, under-educated women being forced to pound out children at a high rate by men who regard them as property in a hyperpatriarchal society that doesn’t care how draining having a lot of kids is for a mother, and that’s what white supremacists want to see western women reduced to. The fact that they also want to stop us from having sex with brown-skinned men is just another symptom of this slaveowner mentality.
8 — One of the things which gives me hope for humanity is how when horrible things happen, most of us rally around and start helping each other. There’ve been some really beautiful stories about what (white) passers-by did to help the shooting victims, and watching the outpouring of love for New Zealand and the Muslim community from all around the world has been making me cry all day. Humans are so fucking gorgeous. I really hope we stick around.

The anti-terrorism unit suited up.
This was an international affair… a deal between the USA and New Zealand, two members of the Five Eyes intelligence alliance.
Helicopters, tactical suits, high caliber firearms—the whole shebang. They busted in the doors and successfully raided the multi-million-dollar compound.
What was this… capturing the next in line after Bin Laden? Busting an international human trafficking ring?
Actually, elite New Zealand law enforcement was acting at the request of the United States to arrest a guy named Kim Dotcom.
Kim Dotcom is a large, jovial man of German-Swedish origins. He founded Megaupload, an online platform that allowed us to basically watch movies online for free.
Unfortunately for Kim, a lot of that content included American movies, with American copyrights.
US artists didn’t get their money, which meant the US government didn’t get its tax dollars.
But Kim Dotcom was a German citizen hanging out in New Zealand. So tough luck for the USA, right?
Wrong. US jurisdiction extends globally… and the government is getting its pound of flesh.
Violate US copyright laws, and get your door kicked in by a SWAT team, even half a world away.
Then there was the Australian, living in London who shared leaked, classified and sensitive documents with the public.
I’m talking about the founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange.
He walked into the Ecuadorian embassy in London six years ago, asking for asylum.
There was a Swedish warrant out for his arrest, alleging rape charges. He faced extradition to Sweden, and feared he would then be turned over to US authorities… who wanted Assange taken down for exposing the extent of the spying the US government was carrying out on its own citizens.
For years it was suspected that there was a sealed US indictment against Assange. Last month, the proof emerged when the US accidentally revealed the filing, but not the specific charges.
So, we’ve got a Aussie journalist who might get arrested in the UK (which has an extradition agreement with the US) for a crime allegedly committed in Sweden… all because the US government has a hard on for this guy.
But this journalist made the mistake of providing the world with the valuable insight that the authoritarian US government was surveilling its own citizens.
And, again, the US wants its pound of flesh.
Just recently, the US has once again flexed its global might to throw someone in jail.
As you’re likely aware, Trump is in the middle of some tense trade war negotiations with China.
Interesting timing that the Chief Financial Officer of the Chinese tech company Huawei, Meng Wanzhou, was just arrested at the request of US authorities. The company allegedly violated US sanctions against Iran by selling technology to the country.
But here’s the thing… Wanzhou wasn’t on American soil. She was arrested in Canada. The Canadian government is bringing the US case against Wanzhou, who could be extradited to the US to face charges.
So a Chinese citizen, working for a Chinese company, complying with Chinese law, was arrested on Canadian soil… because she allegedly violated US law. (She was recently released on bail – after a 3-day bail hearing, and two weeks in jail.)
We know these webs of where the “guilty” are from, where they were living, where they were arrested and on whose behalf is all confusing.
Accidental Disclosure Reveals DOJ Fear For Safety Of…
US Prosecutors disclosed in a late Friday court filing that they are concerned for the safety of Maria Butina, the…
The point is, if you challenge the US government, prepare for your new accommodations in a 6 by 8 foot cage.
It’s crazy. You know I actually had pork the other night, yet somehow Saudi Arabia hasn’t arrested me for violating its laws against non “halal” food.
The US going after Dotcom and Assange is bad enough. But truth be told, these guys poked the bear.
Assange published sensitive, American documents which authorities claim has threatened national security.
Dotcom made the American government lose out on tax dollars.
I still don’t think it’s right to apply American law worldwide… but what do you expect America to do? It’s not surprising.
But the USA’s latest move should disgust anyone with even a distant memory of what freedom was.
If Huawei did business with Iran, this has nothing to do with the United States. It’s not illegal according to Chinese or Canadian law to do business with Iran. That’s a US law.
If the US wants to escalate trade wars or impose more tariffs to punish the company… fine, whatever.
But to bring criminal charges against company leadership just for doing their job is a terrifying development, even for the brazen US world police.
The USA is the self-declared dictator of the planet. Forget sovereign nations, US law applies worldwide.

UFO Files Unsealed in New Zealand
February 20th, 2018
In the event that the entire economy collapses and food and become scarce, billionaires are looking for high-end places to hold out and await the new world order. Many billionaires are now preparing for the apocalypse, and their survival plans don’t include anyone outside the global elites.
Peter Thiel, the billionaire behind PayPal, is among those tech giants who see New Zealand as a good place to go in the event of an apocalypse. New Zealand is seen as a particularly safe place for billionaires in the event of an apocalypse. In fact, Thiel has bought a $13.5 million 193-hectare section on the shores of Lake Wanaka, although the only building there at the moment is a barn (that can be seen).
According to the Mirror, plans show he is fitting a panic room in another property he owns in the country and he has been granted New Zealand citizenship in a streamlined process not available to normal (non-global elitists) members of the public. A rough and ready description of the attraction of New Zealand came last year in The New Yorker magazine, with LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman suggesting the country had become shorthand for apocalypse insurance in Silicon Valley.
In 2011, Thiel declared he’d found “no other country that aligns more with my view of the future than New Zealand”. The country is more relaxed in terms of government than many places, has ample drinking water, and some of the world’s cleanest air.
“Saying you’re ‘buying a house in New Zealand’ is kind of a ‘wink, wink, say no more’,” Hoffman said. “Once you’ve done the Masonic handshake, they’ll be, like: ‘Oh, you know, I have a broker who sells old ICBM [intercontinental ballistic missile] silos, and they’re nuclear-hardened, and they kind of look like they would be interesting to live in.‘”
“Billionaires are going ‘bunkers’ over the apocalypse if you will,” says Joe Joseph with The Daily Sheeple.
“Here’s the thing, folks: to make a long story short, the actions of preppers are vilified,” says Joseph. (Who hasn’t been called a ‘crazy tin foil hat wearing conspiracy theorist’ for having extra cans of food and some dried jerky meats around?) “You look at people who store non-perishable foods, who store fuel, medical supplies…they get laughed at. But these billionaires are doing the exact same thing and in haste! So you have to wonder, what is the sense of urgency with these people of means that they’re willing to go that far, to buy 98% of an island and their own airline to get there…for there to be that much of a sense of urgency.”
“We, society, is institutionalized. When you go to school, it’s cool to be stupid, it’s cool to run with the crowd, if you run outside that crowd, if you’re a ‘black sheep’, you’re a nerd…it’s a toned-down version of prison culture…but it bleeds over to the outside, so when you do your due diligence and your research, and you say ‘holy cow! All of these billionaires are buying up these bunkers and these properties and they’re putting away food and medical supplies and alternative energy…if they’re focused on that, maybe I should do it!’ And what happens? Well, because you’re an outlier because you don’t go with the crowd, you’re vilified and looked at as a ‘black sheep.’
Billionaires are showing an increased level of urgency; perhaps we should too. “They [the billionaires and elite globalists] see something coming that we don’t. It’s all over the news: whether it be an economic collapse, whether it be a pole shift, whether it be Yellowstone; you name it….they see something most don’t, although the truth is right in front of us,” Joseph says.
If you need help prepping, or don’t know where to begin, please check out the book below. It’s full of useful information on how to prepare for many apocalyptic scenarios.
Dear New Zealand: Your loss, our gain.
Signed North America.
According to writer Evan Osnos, preppers from Silicon Valley and New York are getting ready for the “crackup of civilization.”
One American hedge-fund manager who owns two New Zealand homes told Osnos he expected at least a decade of political turmoil in the United States. PayPal co-founder and Facebook investor Peter Thiel also owns property there, and has described New Zealand as “utopia.”
Osnos said it’s unclear exactly how many wealthy Americans are buying property in New Zealand with the apocalypse in mind, while many just want a holiday home there. However, the amount of land they have purchased in the last few years has increased dramatically, he added.
Statistics showed foreigners had bought over 3500 square kilometers of New Zealand in the first ten months of 2016, which is over four times as much as they did in the same period in 2010.
LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman told The New Yorker that New Zealand had become the hot topic among Silicon Valley leaders lately.
“Saying you’re ‘buying a house in New Zealand’ is kind of a wink, wink, say no more. Once you’ve done the Masonic handshake, they’ll be, like, ‘Oh, you know, I have a broker who sells old ICBM silos, and they’re nuclear-hardened, and they kind of look like they would be interesting to live in.”
Hoffman estimated that over half of the Silicon Valley insiders were into preparedness – especially since anti-elite sentiment has risen around the globe in recent years. It was intensified by events like Brexit and the election of Donald Trump, he added.
According to the NY article, in the seven days after Trump’s election, 13,401 Americans registered with New Zealand’s immigration authorities, which is the first step toward seeking residency. The number was “more than seventeen times the usual rate.”
Meanwhile, the growing foreign appetite for New Zealand has already generated resentment. The Campaign Against Foreign Control of Aotearoa—the Maori name for New Zealand—opposes the sell-out to foreigners, particularly to American survivalists.
In a discussion about New Zealand on prepper website Modern Survivalist, one of the commentators wrote, “Yanks, get this in your heads. Aotearoa NZ is not your little last resort safe haven.”
Grand theft avocado?
Avocados are selling for between NZ$4-6 each (£2-3) across the country, after a poor season last year and increasing local demand.
In Australia and New Zealand massive fires and heavy rains wiped out avocado crops, causing a shortage of the delicious fruit.
The recent thefts have taken place in the middle of the night, with the crop either “raked” from the tree and collected in blankets or sheets on the ground, or hand-picked and driven away to pop-up road-side stalls, grocery stores or small-scale sushi, fruit and sandwich shops.
Last month a 200g avocado cost $4.48 on average, compared to $1.64 in May 2015.
Over Queen’s Birthday weekend about 350 avocados were stolen from an orchard on Capamagian Dr in the Athenree area.
Waihi police Sergeant Aaron Fraser said police have one suspect in mind.
“There is someone making a living of stealing avocados and selling them on to the black market.”
“Anything that is going to make them money, they are going to hook on to.”
Police believe the culprit went into the orchard in darkness and spent hours plucking fruit from the trees.
“They must have spent a few hours there taking fruit off the trees, loading them into his own car. We are not sure if he parked the car down the driveway or kept it on the side of the orchard.”
“We believe it’s a man who resides in the eastern Waikato area, in relation to these ones [thefts], but it does happen all over the show.”
He was likely on-selling the fruit to markets or smaller stores and dairies in the area, Fraser said.
“He turns up with a few crate loads of avocados, they probably think he’s an orchardist.”
The CEO of New Zealand Avocado, Jen Scoular, assured the public that the current growing season has proven to be a bumper one for farmers, and with newly harvested fruit entering the market in the coming weeks, she expects the street value of black market avocados to plummet.
“It’s an easy way to make a quick buck, but I don’t think we are dealing with a sophisticated or highly organized operation here, more opportunistic,” she told The Guardian.

Boycott tourism in NZ: More fluorides? Bye bye.
by Jon Rappoport
May 1, 2016
Recently, I’ve written several articles about toxic fluorides (archive: here). The case is clear: cancer, lower IQ, other varieties of severe damage.
I became aware of a group in New Zealand, Fluoride Free NZ. They’ve had remarkable success working with local communities to ban fluorides in water supplies.
But now, in response, the New Zealand government has decided to make fluoridation a federal issue and take choice out of the hands of locals. Predictable. Tyrannical. The usual.
“We’ll fluoridate everybody, and there’s nothing you can do about it. We rule, you obey.”
So I suggested people should write to the tourism authority in New Zealand. You know—“Hi, guess what? My money isn’t coming to your country. More fluorides? I’m not traveling to your paradise.”
This is the best contact address I’ve been able to come up with so far:
Associate Minister of Tourism
p (dot) bennett (at) ministers (dot) govt (dot) nz
Jump in. Go for it. Send a message.
A reader emailed me the letter he just wrote:
Dear Tourism New Zealand executive staff,
My name is Michael Blanshan. I am a naturopathic doctor in New Mexico, U.S.A. Years ago a group of friends and I were discussing New Zealand and all it has to offer as a country. Many of our group travelled to New Zealand and two families moved there, one to Nelso and one to Christchurch. These were good families with children and much to offer their local communities, not retirees looking for a country in which to retire.
In my own travels I often run into New Zealanders (aka kiwis). They are generally great travelers, good people, kind, open-minded, intelligent, and generally fun. The very spirit of New Zealand which most kiwis embody seems to me to serve as New Zealand’s best advertising.
Being a naturopath, I am keenly aware of the history of the fluoridation of drinking water, those who promoted this policy, their motivations for doing so, and the forms of pressure they use to continue the policy despite compelling scientific opposition. A local organization in New Zealand calling itself Fluoride Free NZ has worked tirelessly with communities to educate them on this issue. They worked diligently and the majority of those communities have chosen not to fluoridate their local water supplies. In response to this group’s effectiveness, the NZ federal government is now acting to take the decision making authority away from local councils and communities and put the power into the hands of District Health Boards (DHB), who are under the direct control of Central Government.
This action has profound implications, though it may seem inconsequential to you, especially considering that you are a department for tourism. Though I stated that the people of New Zealand are its best feature, this is a black mark on New Zealand as a country. It points to a corruption of your federal government and its purported goals of serving its people. To the contrary, the government is showing that it has a will of its own and that it acts in the interests of other parties.
The policy of fluoridation originated in the U.S.A. in the 1940s. Many European countries have rejected this policy, knowing it was not about health but rather that it was the result of corrupt influences. For the New Zealand government to force this policy shows that they’re not interested in science or the natural rights of the people and worse, that the New Zealand government is caving to pressure from either American or UK interests.
Please understand that the irony of an American writing about corruption in government does not escape me. Educated Americans know all too well the workings and techniques of a dictatorship which presents itself as a democracy. It is as a result of the extreme corruption of the leadership of Western countries that we look to New Zealand and still see it to be a land of free individuals who can run their local communities as they like.
If the New Zealand federal government goes ahead with this decision, I personally will not visit New Zealand in the future. If any of my friends or clients discuss the possibility of travelling to New Zealand, I will do my best to dissuade them. Potential visitors to New Zealand should know that all is not well in paradise and that behind the scenes you have the same dictatorship we see in the West. Despite all its physical beauty I still contend that the best part about New Zealand is its people. If the people of New Zealand are forced to stand in the shadow cast by a dictatorial federal government, something vital and essential will have been lost.
Thank you, Michael.
Thank you, Fluoride Free NZ, for showing the way.

Pot is in short supply in New Zealand and prices are up following its growing popularity and a large police seizure of plants.

The marijuana plant seems to have gained such popularity in New Zealand that the country is facing a pot shortage, but it isn’t just because stoners like to get high. Earlier this month, police seized 9000 plants in an annual aerial operation, which affected both outdoor and indoor growing of the highly-desired flowering herb.
It’s understandable that cannabis would be so desired. There are more than 475 natural chemical compounds in marijuana, including over 80 medicinal cannabinoids. The two most well-known cannabinoids are THC and CBD, both well-known for having extremely beneficial effects for health.
New Zealand measures up with the US for global rankings of cannabis consumption, but crack-downs by the federal government there have left many marijuana users without a single plant.
A local writer in New Zealand called the situation, “catastrophic.” In the same article, the writer described the local reaction to the combined air and police force seizure:
“On Stuff, Twitter, the Herald and even Reddit, reactions ranged from ‘what a waste of money’ through to ‘what a waste of money’, with many pointing out the irony of engaging the services of the Royal New Zealand Air Force to bust weed growers, when it was simultaneously revealed that more than 150 burglaries a day currently go unsolved by police.”
Marijuana is easily New Zealand’s most desired illegal product, but no matter what the cause for the shortage – police action, gang warfare, bad weather, or even the growth cycle of the plant – there simply isn’t enough cannabis in NZ.
Due to the shortage, consumers are paying up to five times the normal price for a gram-and-a-half. Prices for an ounce are up 30 percent, with quality falling considerably. For recreational users, it’s a downer, but for medicinal users, the problem is possibly more disastrous.
A cannabis consumer told the Guardian:
“I haven’t had problems sourcing it for the last 14 years.”
But due to the current shortage, he was forced to seek out prescription anti-depressants.
Possession of any amount of cannabis is illegal in New Zealand.
Perhaps New Zealanders can catch a flight to neighboring Australia. Word on the street says the country just legalized medical cannabis. A recently discovered loophole in the laws for overseas patients also allows a patient to bring a month’s supply into the country.
The Australian federal government has stated that they have no plans to close the loophole.
The TPP agreement, hailed as the “biggest trade deal in a generation,” was signed in a ceremony attended by ministers from the 12 Pacific Rim countries at Auckland’s Sky City Casino, to the dislike of hundreds of protesters.
Another large group sat down at the end of Hobson Street, blocking entrances and exits to the southern and north-western motorway, while another group stopped traffic at the Fanshawe Street entrance and exit to the Northern Motorway. Police have warned demonstrators to move out or face arrests but have refrained from coercive action.
The signing of the TPP went ahead anyways, to the uproar of a crowd of more than 1,000 people. New Zealand Prime Minister John Key said he is “delighted” with the deal, telling the attendees that the agreement “will enhance the prosperity of our people.”
“New Zealand is proud to be involved in this whole process… I want to acknowledge the courage and vision of my fellow TPP leaders,” he said.
Earlier this week, acknowledging global opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) because of the agreement’s “undemocratic pedigree,“Alfred de Zayas, the UN’s independent expert on the promotion of democratic and equitable international order, said the trade agreement “is fundamentally flawed and should not be signed or ratified unless provision is made to guarantee the regulatory space of States.”
